MOTORCYCLE LEARNER PERMIT
Motorcycle Learners Permit Assessment (MPA) - Learner Permit Issued Upon Completion
All new riders need to attend and pass the 2 day Learners Permit Course prior to obtaining the Learner Permit. This is VicRoads mandated course including off-road training, performed on “The Range” and an on-road assessment.
This is in addition to the existing motorcycle knowledge test.
The Learner Permit Course is a 15 hour course of training and testing over a two day period. It is designed specifically around the assumption that the student is an absolute novice rider with no previous experience.
The course covers all safety aspects for riders, from basic control skills through to the point where the student skill level will be safe for “real world” road riding situations in traffic.The training and testing consist of various exercises, riding our motorcycles on our training range and on the road.
The class sizes normally consist of a maximum of 5 riders to 1 instructor, allowing the instructor to devote the time requirement for each student to fully understand the safe riding concepts.
Some of the subjects covered include :

SAY ABOUT US
Best Course Ever!! Patient & comprehensive instruction by clearly experienced trainers took me from having never ridden a motorbike to confidently passing my Learners in just 2days!!
Wow! The staff were really great. The facilities were great and the bikes and gear that we were provided with were excellent. This course is highly recommended.
This was a bucket list item. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would be happy to recommend anyone to Ridetek, wanting to ride a motorcycle.
I originally did my learners with Ride-Tek and from that experience I booked in to do my full P’s purely due to the service.
Ride-Tek do a great job of training riders. They don’t just deliver a generic program, but assess where your skills and confidence are at and tweak the motorcycle training to your needs.
